Forum: classic_tv Subject: A Presumably complete list of surviving episodes of "The Morey Amsterdam Show"

Since the episodes didn't have titles, they are instead listed by alleged air-date.

There is a damaged episode of "The Morey Amsterdam Show" on here. I've also viewed another episode (the finale) on TV4u.

Great comedy/variety series that also has Art Carney in an recurring role. So it is cool that it survives with such a large number of episodes.


The following are CBS episodes. The CBS run also featured Jacqueline Susann, who played a "dumb dora" character

The following are DuMont episodes:
1949-04-21 (Jacqueline Susann's last appearance on the show, possibly as she was married to a CBS producer. She later hosted a DuMont show called "Open Door" which has no surviving episodes)

I am hoping to acquire some episodes to upload from different sources than I usually use to get the shows I upload. If these episodes are not of presentable quality (for example, if a watermark appears during the whole episode....though if it is just the opening titles, it would be OK), I know of a another source that could provide a single further episode. Hopefully the first source will be OK.

If both sources are of very poor quality, then I'm screwed. There was a DVD listed on eBay a while ago with four episodes, but it seems to have vanished. If anybody else has them please let me know.

Oh yeah, and just out of boredom, I'd like to mention that Morey Amsterdam also appears in one of the surviving episodes of "Cavalcade of Stars" (hosted by Jackie Gleason, other guests in the episode include Jo Sullivan and The Ames Brothers. Jackie does sketches including "Joe the Bartender" and "Reggie Van Gleason III". No, I don't have it, I don't know where to get it, and like you, yes, I want to see it!)
